Fisher Lead Directing Double - The conventional use of a double requesting a Club lead over opponents' Notrump contract or a Diamond lead if opponents' made an undoubled 2C Stayman call.  When opponents begin and conclude the auction in Notrump, the opening leader normally seeks a major suit lead.  The Fisher Double is intended to provide the opening leader specific lead instruction to beat the contract where a normal major lead would fail to set the contract.

While the Fisher Double has some merit, a more robust use of the double in this situation is the Lightener Game Double asking partner to deduce the best lead based on partner's long running suit, i.e., opening leader's short suit.
